The LaFerrari needs few superlatives. It is our most ambitious project yet, pushing the boundaries of technology for a road car. It gathers together the marque’s greatest technical capabilities from both GT and Formula 1 engineering, delivering the highest performance ever reached by a production Ferrari. And yet, the cause is noble. All this advanced technology will filter to the rest of the Ferrari model range.
As Ferrari’s first production car powered by the F1-derived HY-KERS hybrid drivetrain, it combines a 161-hp electric motor with the most powerful Ferrari V12, itself making 788 hp at 9000 rpm, for a power sum of 949 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque.
Airflow heavily influences the body’s sculpture. Elegantly-hewn forms communicate enormous power and aggressiveness, particularly at the wheelarches. The front wears a low wing that appears suspended on a central strut beneath the nose, clearly inspired by F1. Surfaces and texture flow front-to-rear over the cockpit, always serving an aerodynamic master. This fluid surface treatment gives the low drag and high downforce characteristics needed while also channelling air to cool hot components.
What makes the LaFerrari concept so innovative is the use of active aerodynamics as a tool for the car’s other dynamic control systems, delivering a breakthrough in overall performance not possible if both were independent. Integration of active aero with the dynamic controls and systems make even better use of the downforce and aero balance gains. The LaFerrari has an extremely compact frontal area for low drag and the greenhouse shape helps airflow reach the rear air cooling intakes.
The LaFerrari’s driving position draws heavily from F1 influence, with Scuderia drivers directly involved in design and development. The cockpit clearly shows its motorsports origins, yet marries tradition and modernity. The driving position turns normal road-car conventions on their head. The seat is fixed in position. Both the steering wheel and pedal box adjust to meet the driver’s hands and feet. The steering wheel shows in-depth research and development tied to motorsports with the LaFerrari’s various functions integrated in Formula 1 fashion. Designers lengthened the gear-shift paddles, making them more ergonomic. The gearbox control’s bridge in the center of the cockpit takes on a suspended wing shape. Lastly, the instrument panel’s secondary controls for audio, navigation, climate and telemetry are located on the door and the center of the dashboard, highlighting the mission-critical controls directly in front of the driver.

If a person writes a check without sufficient funds in an associated account to cover it, the check will bounce, or be returned for insufficient funds. Each state has laws regulating how merchants may respond to bounced checks. In Connecticut, the merchant may file a civil suit and press criminal charges if the check writer does not reimburse him for a bounced check after the merchant has sent several notices regarding the matter.
Posted Notice Requirement
Merchants and other business owners who accept checks must post a notice where customers are likely to see it warning them of the potential consequences of writing bad checks. The notice must include the civil penalties that bad check writers may face, the appropriate Connecticut statute number and an advisory that the check writer may also face criminal penalties
Civil and Criminal Penalties
As of 2010, civil courts may require the check writer to reimburse the merchant for the value of the check plus pay up to $750 if he has no back account or $400 if the check is returned for insufficient funds. If the merchant chooses to press criminal charges, the bad check writer may face a fine of up to $1,000 and up to one year in jail. Writing a bad check is a felony charge if the check was for more than $1,000 and a misdemeanor if written for a lesser amount.
Required Written Notices
If a check bounces, the merchant must send the check writer a letter by certified mail at the check writer's last known address or place of business. Usually this letter is sent to the address on the writer's check. The letter must inform the writer that the check was returned ask him to reimburse the merchant for the amount of the check and inform him of the potential criminal or civil penalties if he fails to do so. If the check writers does not respond to the letter within 15 days of receipt, the merchant must send a second letter. This letter must inform the check writer that he has 30 days to reimburse the merchant before the merchant takes legal action against him. Both letters must be written in both English and Spanish.
